Spread the love

The Leeds University Centre for African Studies (LUCAS), in collaboration with the Leeds Arts and Humanities Research Institute (LAHRI), is pleased to announce a limited number of short-term virtual research fellowships for 2021.

LUCAS-LAHRI Virtual Research Fellowships

The LUCAS-LAHRI Virtual Research Fellowships are short-term (three-month) fellowships for academics based at institutions on the African continent, who through these positions will be given an opportunity to undertake a well-defined piece of research in collaboration with academics at Leeds.

Each fellowship comes with an award of £1,000, to be used by the applicant for research expenses and/or buy-out from teaching duties at their institution.

The scheme is thematically linked to the LAHRI-funded Sadler seminar series “African Knowledges for Global Challenges” running this year.

This interdisciplinary series explores questions related to the Sustainable Development Goals and the Global Challenges Research agendas from critical decolonial and Africa-centred perspectives.

Hence, we welcome proposals that foreground “Africa” as a starting point for interrogating existing, and developing new knowledges relating to major societal challenges.

LUCAS-LAHRI Virtual Research Fellowships Eligibility

Candidates who have completed their PhD by the application deadline at any university are eligible, as long as they are currently based at an academic institution on the African continent.

Proposals from Arts, Humanities, humanistic Social Sciences and adjacent disciplines are welcome as long as they broadly and critically engage with the theme of “African Knowledges for Global Challenges”.

Applicants will have to confirm that a University of Leeds academic member of staff has agreed to support their application.

How To Apply For LUCAS-LAHRI Virtual Research Fellowships

The deadline for applications is 5pm (GMT) on Monday 8 March 2021.

The three-month fellowship period is supposed to be taken up in the period May–December 2021.
